Watson was wanted in the Aug. 17, 2012, shooting death of Preston Strong of Gary, Ind. A $1 million arrest warrant was issued the next month.
The department says Watson appeared in bond court, where his bail was set at $1 million on a charge of first-degree murder and $100,000 on an unrelated drunken driving charge.
He is scheduled to return in court on Tuesday.
